Review for Independence First, Inc., Milwaukee, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with Independence First for over 20 years. They have always been on the cutting edge of ideas on how to work towards independence for people with disabilities. If someone said it couldn't be done, they would do it. From peer support, nursing home transition, heck even bingo, Lee Schulz and his staff have set the bar for the rest of us in the CIL community

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working with staff on committees, meeting with their board and receipents of services, attended special events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fund them so they could train other CIL's on their success.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & ED of a Center for Independent Living.
